Question about Toshiba Satelite 2405-S201 Notebook

1 Answer

Memory system appears to have to have a memory limit of 512mb. Can this be corrected. I tried all types of memory configs,but message comes up saying please install 512mb or less. this seems absurd in a p4 1.6ghz. The message comes up during post from within the notebooks firmware. any help would be appreciated. Thanks Frank Velez Frankvelez1@hotmail.com

How do i get my Olympus D560 to use an xD M+ memory card? I keep getting card error message.


Hi,

The Olympus compatibility chart on their website says that your camera works with type M and M+ sizes 256MB - 512MB.
The chart also says 256MB - 512MB for type H and 16MB - 512MB for standard xD cards.
It looks like the largest size xD you can use of any type is 512MB.
The D560 is quite an early digital camera and it is not unusual to have card size limitations.

How do I upgrade memory on a t1100 emachine from 256mb


Your emachines eMachines T1100 only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in your computer. From what I see you should use straight PC-133 Try a site like Kahlon.com-they make sure it works with your computer as would kingston or corsair...
Your maximum amount of ram is only 256mb total.
hope this helps...good luck- please leave a rating...thank you kindly

I have a Satellite 2405-S221 and I was wondering if the max memory i can install is 512K, is there a way to update the bios, or ANYTHING to increase that amount to at least 1 gig??


Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop takes the PC2100 DDR SDRAM SODIMMs Memory Type, and comes installed with 256 MB (removable) of Memory. You can upgrade your Toshiba Satellite 2405-S221 Laptop to up to a maximum of 512 MB Memory, the system has 2 sockets to install Memory, already with 256 MB (removable) standard Memory installed.

In short.... yeah, 512k is the max.

Doesn't appear to a bios limitation. It is a hardware issue that is limiting the amount.

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....


The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!

Memory upgrade


We have the memory you need. Memory-Up is committed to provide the best memory and excellent services for all of our customers. We know that sometimes it is a bit confusing to buy the correct type, speed, and capacity of memory for your system. Therefore we hope that these tips below would help you for buying the new memory.
Memory Upgrade Tips

What is Compatibility and Memory Density Issue?

Memory module can be composed using different type of memory chips and therefore created different type of density for the module. For instance, a 512MB PC2700 DDR SODIMM memory can be composed using eight 32x16(High Density 512Mb technology) memory chips or sixteen 32x8(Low Density 256Mb technology) memory chips. As the laptops are equipped with different memory chipsets, some older laptop (chipset) would have compatibility issue working with the modules that is built with the newer 512Mb technology. Using the Not-Compatible memory will result the laptop to either not boot or only recognizing half of the memory modules. Thus that is not the correct memory for your system. Our Memory Finder and Memory Scanner will help to eliminate those problems and find the correct memory for you. We guaranteed the memory to work or your money back. 

How much memory do I need?

Here are some general descriptions for different type of users and the amount of memory they would need for their systems.

Normal User: The system is mainly used for checking e-mails, processing word/excel file, and web surfing. Suggestion: 512MB to 1GB of system memory. 

Power User: The system is mainly used for playing computer games, editing photos/videos, running database queries, or multi-tasking environment. (Surfing web/Processing Word/Excel File/Listening to Music). Suggestion: 1GB to 2GB of system memory.

Super User: The system is mainly used for running large number of database queries, professional editing of photos/videos, heavy multi-tasking environment. Usually a server or a workstation would be considered as Super User due to the multiple accesses from users. Suggestion: 2GB and above of system memory.

How much memory and memory slot do I have with my system? 

You can download our Memory-Scanner to find out the the amount of memory that you have and the memory slots that are available for upgrade. 

How many memory module should I buy?

It is recommended to purchase one module with bigger capacity than two modules with smaller capacity. For instance, if you can buy either one 1GB memory module or two 512MB memory modules for your system, it is recommended to get one 1GB and leave the other memory slot empty for future upgrade if necessary. 

Note: For systems that supports dual channel memory mode, although memory modules need to be installed in pairs to enable Dual Channel Memory Mode, we still recommended users to purchase one bigger module than two smaller modules since Dual Channel Memory Mode has only a minimal improvement in the actual system performance.

What if I want to mix different memory together?

Different sizes/speeds of memory can be used together as long as their specification are qualified by the systems. For instance, a laptop can use one 256MB and one 1GB of memory for the total of 1.25GB system memory. Mixing two different speeds of memory modules would result the system to run at the speed of the slower memory between the two modules. We recommend users to use our Memory Finder or Memory Scanner to find the correct memory for your system.

Can you expand the memory on a Systemax Intel SIS651 System


Your motherboard is actually a Foxconn 651M03.

According to your system you have :
512MB DDR333 PC2700 Non-ECC Memory (512MB x 1)
(One stick of 512MB)

The motherboard manual says this:
System Memory
Two 184-pin DDR DIMM slots
Supports PC1600/PC2100/PC2700 memory
Supports 64Mb/128Mb/256Mb/512Mb technology up to 2GB

(This means you can have a total of up to 2 Gigabytes of RAM)

If you upgrade your RAM, you will need to make sure that you get the correct type.

If you want to keep the RAM you have, you will only be able to have 1.5 GB of RAM because you only have two slots to work with. If you want to upgrade to the full 2 GB, you will need to buy 2, 1 GB sticks.
